Blue Boat Canal Cruise
Book yourself a perch on the Blue Boat Company and set off for a boat tour across the many waterways and canals of Amsterdam, also known as the 'Venice of the North'. Located in Stadhouderskade, the Blue Boat Company offers guided tours of the city, with their daytime cruise. Drinks and snacks can be bought on board during the tours. Also on offer as is an evening cruise during the summer months and the blue boat dinner cruise available on Saturdays all year round. In the summer months you can also opt for the Blue Sky Boat, which is a smaller open top boat that will give you a more intimate experience of the city. So lots of really great options!
